Bike parks again

Here is a reminder that the community meetings for the City of Pittsburgh's parks and open space plan are taking place this week and next; the first meeting is this evening in Lawrenceville.  If you are a cyclist in SW Pennsylvania please try to attend a meeting. Still unsure about what a dedicated bicycle park looks like? Here is a video just for you.

We need to come together as a cycling community to decide what something like this would look like in Pittsburgh.  Maybe some XC trails?  How about a Cyclocross course with stands, spectating, and a pits area? How about a pump track? Maybe a bike polo court? How about a fixed gear freestyle area with boxes and banks? Dirt jumps, freeride sections, childrens' fun features, skills development course, criterium road loop, bmx track, unicycle area, recumbent beard trimming station, you get the idea; basically, if we can all get together and make our desires heard, there is a better chance we can make it happen.
Power to the people.
